Shocking news (with an awesome twist!)
Film making. It’s a funny old business.
There we were, quietly going about selling the movie in various worldwide territories… when all of a sudden – KA-BLAM! Don’t Let Him In is released on DVD in the Netherlands and the very next day, it’s been torrented (pirated)… all over the world… for free!
…or so we thought.
The sad truth is that this is the reality of the film business now, and there’s nada we can do about it. Except to suggest you hold off for the high-quality Blu-Ray and DVD release of the movie rather than download a crummy-looking, pixelated version.
So what’s the happy twist?
I happened to take a look at IMDB’s MovieMeter this morning and I’m staggered… we’re currently the #9th most popular horror movie… IN THE WORLD!

And we’re starting to get a lot more enquiries about the release dates of the OFFICIAL DVD/BLU-RAY. For serious horror fans, curious about what Turner Classic Movies’ Mark Banville calls “a great British horror film … which beats most direct-to-DVD horror fodder hands down” (sorry, went all marketing speak there), we hope you’ll buy the original DVD. That way you’ll get the stylish original packaging, audio commentary, behind the scenes featurette and other cool stuff.
The movie will next be released in France, US, Canada, Australia and Greece over Aug – Dec 2011 with a launch in the UK looking like early 2012.
We’ll let you know more when we know more…
